Sunrisers Hyderabad has lost 10 out of 12 matches in IPL 2021. On Sunday, he had to face defeat by 6 wickets against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), after which former cricketer Virender Sehwag questioned the batsmen of this team.
New Delhi. Sunrisers Hyderabad’s journey in IPL 2021 was very disappointing. This team has lost 10 out of 12 matches and this team is already out of the race for the playoffs. Sunrisers Hyderabad suffered their 10th defeat in the tournament on Sunday. Kolkata Knight Riders beat Hyderabad by 6 wickets. Batting first, Hyderabad team could score only 115 runs for 8 wickets in 20 overs. However, Kolkata Knight Riders also had to struggle to win and the team got the victory 2 balls before. But the Hyderabad batsmen once again disappointed everyone and former cricketer Virender Sehwag compared them to sleeping pills.
Trolling Sunrisers Hyderabad batsmen, Virender Sehwag said, ‘Hyderabad started with Roy and Saha but both soon returned to the dug-out. After this, Kane Williamson and Priyam Garg took over the innings but this pitch was so slow that it was becoming very difficult to score runs on it. After this Abdul Samad hit three sixes and after scoring 25 runs, he was also out. But after this the other Hyderabad batsmen looked like sleeping pills. In the last 4 overs, I fell asleep. When I woke up, I saw Hyderabad have scored only 115 runs for 8 wickets in 20 overs. Virender Sehwag spoke on Virugiri.com.
Sunrisers Hyderabad will be in last place
Let us tell you that Sunrisers Hyderabad will remain in the last place in this season. Even if she wins her remaining two matches, her place in the points table will remain 8th. Hyderabad had to bear the brunt of the poor form of their experienced batsmen this season. Hyderabad removed David Warner from the captaincy first in the middle of the season and after that did not include him in the playing XI. Warner could only score 195 runs in 8 matches this season at an average of 24.37. Kedar Jadhav, Wriddhiman Saha, Manish Pandey, all these batsmen could not show a good game according to their talent. Along with this, Hyderabad also missed its opener Jonny Bairstow in the second round.
